"Although not specifically requested, Liam was placed with a young female Doctor who was doing her residency at the time. She called herself Dr.
" but I soon learned that her full name is Dr Athina
-
. Dr Athina
-
at
. A Brilliant Physician who treats her families with respect and continues to think about options for her patients long after her appointments have finished. She is everything I have ever dreamed of in a pediatrician who every day gives 100% to those in her care. I must be truthful and say that there is one thing that she doesn't bring to work, and that's any kind of ego that can be so disheartening to patients. Our First Appointment - Dr
was late by 10 minutes; and profusely apologized. That was the first good sign It took me about five minutes to decide that this woman was passionate about her patients. Moreover, she spent a great deal of time and thought into how to best relate to her patient and the parent whether she talked to the entire family unit, or a single individual. When you put your child in the hands of an expert like Dr.
, a parent never knows what to expect. For me, a first time parent to an adopted child, my mind was literally loaded with concerns like was he developing in line with the expected goals for his age group? or is that little spot under his arm a harmless freckle or a cancerous tumor. Of course by the time I get to the appointment I have convinced myself that something incurable has developed and I could have prevented it somehowThis young resident took my breath away. Not only was her knowledge insightful and thoroughly researched, she did something that I find very rare these days. She provided the information required after Liam's exam (subject to those tests that needed to be taken to the lab), and she answered my questions in a language I could understand. Not Doctor-talk!What was so special is that she did this in a manner that was comforting and respectful and at the end she re-assured me by spending a few minutes going through the treatment plan with her Attending. She seemed to lack all of the stereotypes that patients dislike about doctors. There was no ego or arrogance, and I can't even remember a white coat. She didn't whisk in and out like she was fitting us in between a heart transplant and a brain tumor biopsy. She didn't whizz around from corner to corner on the little stool instead of getting up and walking, and she didn't constantly call me "mom". Best of all, when we met her, she actually read the notes that the nursing assistant had painstakingly recorded instead of the usual 20 minutes pre-interview only for the doctor to come in and ask you why you are there. Most of all, she looked me in the eye and not at a computer. For me, this is a biggie. Recently I was at a doctor's appointment when all I could hear was him tapping away on his desktop completely unaware that I was trying to gain eye contact. For all I know, he could have been emailing a shopping list to his wife. It was awful. A year or so later Dr.
gave us the bad news that she had graduated and would be moving on. Of course it was great news for her and she deserved nothing less. She wasn't sure where she would be and as the years went by I checked from time to time to see if she had joined a practice. In the meantime I had been taking Liam to a local primary care that I thought was nothing more than just ok. All they did was refer us to a specialist when I felt that they could have At this point I do not want to give anyone the impression that I am a
! However, our insurance changed and I checked through the list and hey presto, Dr.
was as
. Although Liam had a recent physical, I felt it was not thorough enough and made an appointment to see Dr.
in a few weeks at her practice about 30 minutes away. All the people we met on that day were fantastic. All I could think about was am I a blithering idiot to think that Dr.
would actually remember us. When she entered the room she not only remembered us from UNC, she remembered some specific problems Liam had and asked how he had been doing since then. Unlike his recent 10 minute examination, Dr,
discussed medical issues that I realize now were completely relevant and extremely important; but not even spotted or looked at by his
doctor. It was only towards the end of his exam that I realized that she was extremely pregnant. In fact so pregnant, she was due the following week and would be taking a short break. I had a shock when she told me that it was her second baby! I want to end by telling you why this doctor is so special. A few days later I had a call from a member of her practice to say that Dr
had taken some further time to think about Liam's issue, and wanted him to have some tests with a specialist. For the sake of my son I will not go into details because it was highly personal, but as a result of this referral, we obtained some crucial information that will will now be able to think about the impact on Liam's future, and how we can manage it. If it had not been for her thorough exam and follow up, we would never have known. One of the nurses told me that Dr.
doesn't just tick the box after finishing one patient, she spends time thinking through examinations that she had been doing in case other factors should be considered. In Liam's case, Dr.
had so little time before the birth of her baby, that it frankly would not have surprised me if she was continuing her patient care in between contractions. Every Doctor, Nurse and administrative associate at
has been superb. However at a time when people seem to find time to complain, I want to thank Dr.
for putting her patients and families first; for trusted advice and knowledge, and most of of all for treating her families with compassion and respect so that our confidence as parents can grow for the maximum benefit of the child. Our thanks and gratitude go out to all at
, especially to Dr.
who epitomizes everthing that is right at a time when so little time is available.

She and they are excellent. we've been seeing her for about 7 years. She has a great way with kids. We have 2 kids and she seems to be very knowledgeable and willing to spend the time to explain to the parents what's going on and in as much detail as you want. She has very good manners dealing with the kids and with the parents.

We picked Dr.

to be our pediatrician when I was 6 months pregnant with our first child 8.5 years ago. We now have 3 kids (2 boys & 1 girl) and wouldn't go anywhere else. Dr.

knows what he is talking about. If he tells you not to worry, trust him, he's right. If there is something of concern, he will discuss and answer all questions and know what steps to take next. He knows our family by name, not chart. When you call his office a live person answers and his staff is great. We have always been able to get into see him the same day if needed and normally as quickly as I need. We have also seen Dr.

She was punctual, friendly, and very informative. When I asked her opinion about something, she gave it to me. I was very happy with everything I learned about her work history, as well as the overall experience of meeting with her to discuss the possibility of her being our family's pediatrician, so I will definitely be using her! Plus, the office staff was very nice, which is really important!

I have been taking them here for about 16 years. She is very friendly and thorough. She is a very smart doctor and up to date on the latest medical practices. She is great at explaining things so you can understand without dumbing it down. She has a very nice office staff and scheduling is pretty typical.
